At this point I would imagine that there is almost nothing that we can do that would make Apple bring any jobs back home.And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

These people also have the option not to work there, and no I'm not saying I agree it's ok to have people working in those conditions....

To clarify "most workers eat and sleep at company facilities"
I believe the particular factory being referred to is Shenzen, often refered to as FOXCONN CITY. Wiki article below:
"Foxconn City" or "iPod City". Covering about 1.16 square miles (3 square km), it includes 15 factories, worker dormitories, a swimming pool, a fire brigade, its own television network (Foxconn TV), and a downtown complete with a grocery store, bank, restaurants, bookstore, and hospital

I know working conditions at Foxconn aren't good. I even alluded to that in my post. I was simply pointing out that they could have found MUCH better examples of the bad working conditions than what was in this mmi article. If the point of the article was to make us feel bad for them, it missed the mark completely.
Maybe you need to spend a little bit of time off your soap box and increase your reading comprehension a little.

And most of the people that "hate americans" do so for religious reasons, not because of any entitled attitude. Perceived entitled attitudes are why some americans hate other americans.
Oh... also have to say that I just love that there is a big ® on the box next to the Foxconn name. Nice to know that China wants everyone else to respect their intellectual property

This topic has come up before and once again, it will fade away and nothing will change. Corporations only care about one thing, profits. NEXT!

I as well work 60 hours a week and also sleep at my job every once in awhile. But I have a choice to be there or not.
